Gyro-dope

Well, I may be prescient. The markets took a huge, record-breaking dip yesterday, and it looks like the result of a careless error. The same kind of error that could be caused by the consumption of substandard gyro meat. This is exactly what I predicted in a post just this Tuesday in my analysis of … Continue reading

Greek Tragedy

I’m as worried as anyone about this whole Greece situation. Their economy is in tatters, their government is broke, and bailing them out may collapse the European Union. And who knows what that could foment? Utter chaos in the United States. Let me paint a terrifying narrative of what could happen: Greece needs money. A … Continue reading

A Vast Left-Wing Conspiracy

I know I’m not going to make any friends, but that’s not why I’m here. I have to say something, before it’s too late. There’s a vast communist organization in America, and almost no one is aware of it. Money is being taken directly from hard-working Americans and funneled toward people who are choosing not … Continue reading

The New Civil Rights

The recent Supreme Court decision to expand Corporate civil rights was an important advancement (as I have explained before here and here) but it was only a beginning. Corporations are still discriminated against every day, and that discrimination takes many forms. We will not be truly free as a Nation until everyone, Citizen and Corporation … Continue reading

American Health Care is the Best in the World

The American Health Care system is the best in the world. Everybody knows that. Why else would foreign dignitaries come here for their health care? You hear about it all the time. But I don’t have to rely on anecdotal evidence for my proof. I have actual proof. We spend more on health care than … Continue reading

Der Schule is in Session

After this video, I have come to the conclusion that not all rap is bad. Hopefully, this will help convert the next generation of rap fans into Hayekians (or at least away from being Keynesians).

Taxes

I shouldn’t have to explain this. Taxes are bad. You might be able to argue that they are a necessary evil, but evil things are bad. Point proven. What makes taxes so bad? Well, several things, and I can’t decide which is the worst so I’ll list a few: Taxes take away money that I … Continue reading

Why Capitalism is Superior

One reader wrote in to complain that I didn’t explain why capitalism was the superior system like I said I would in the previous post. Congratulations, dweeb, you found an oversight on a web-log. I’m surprised you have to have it explained to you in the first place (but, really, not that surprised). To see … Continue reading

A Lesson on Capitalism

From some of the emails that I have received, it sounds like some of you people don’t understand how capitalism works, and what makes it inherently better than other systems. True capitalism allows the free hand of the invisible market to control everything. You shouldn’t regulate this hand. That’s why it’s called the “free hand“. … Continue reading

A Modest Proposal

South Carolina Lieutenant Governor Andre Bauer has gotten the PC types a little upset with some recent statements about people who receive public assistance, but he’s only telling the plain truth. He said: “My grandmother was not a highly educated woman, but she told me as a small child to quit feeding stray animals. You … Continue reading
